Citizens of the Greek Island of Lesbos burned down a United Nations migrant reception center on their island Sunday amidst a wave of illegal immigrants arriving from Turkey.
Lesbos is located in the Aegean Sea, just miles away from the territory of Turkey. The island has been besieged by arrivals of migrant boats, filled with Middle Eastern refugees seeking to seek asylum in the European Union.
Video of the event showed a UN facility aflame.

Reports on the incident reveal that the migrant facility was empty and no one was injured in its destruction by the locals. It’s possible that the Greek islanders hoped to avoid the UN from using the facility to house even more migrants from Turkey, as the large populations of those hoping to seek asylum in Europe have proven detrimental to quality of life and public resources on the island.
Residents of the island are also staging large-scale protests against the mass arrival of dubious ‘refugees.’ The island’s daily life has been radically altered by intermittent arrival of Middle Eastern refugees on dinghies for years.
New inflows of migrants have been unleashed by Turkey in recent days, with the nation’s Islamist Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan hoping to punish European nations for their reaction to his country’s military intervention in Turkey.
Migrants are massing on the nation’s continental European border with Greece. They had previously been prevented from traveling to Turkey’s European territory under an agreement between Turkey and the EU, which provided funding for Turkey to house the migrants and so-called refugees in return for halting their movement.
The Greek Army has been deployed along with local police in preparation for attempts by migrants to cross the border en masse.
Should the situation grow in magnitude, we could soon be witnessing a repeat of the destabilizing and chaotic movements of people into Europe seen in 2015. Such a development would represent a failure of European governments to deliver the basic border security and national sovereignty demanded by their citizens, who began to vote for populist political movements shortly after the massive migrant arrivals of 2015.
Polish Election: National Conservative President Andrzej Duda Leads, Will Face Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger in Runoff
Poland’s President won the first round of the runoff.
Poland’s national conservative President, Andrzej Duda, will face liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski in a runoff election in July. Duda, of the Law and Justice Party, recieved a strong electoral plurality in the first round of elections, taking just under 44%. Trzaskowski recieved 30%, and will be the sole candidate competing against Duda in the runoff elections.
Trzaskowski favors further integrating Poland with the European Union, and has pitched his candidacy to global liberal western elites irritated by euroskeptic and nationalist sentiment in Poland. He’s attended the globalist Bilderberg Conference, and received a scholarship from the Soros Foundation in the early 90’s as a student.
Trzaskowski also led the movement within the country to resettle thousands of Middle Eastern refugees in Poland during the 2015 migrant crisis, a policy that was overturned after Duda took office that year.
Duda has campaigned on reforming the nation’s judiciary, resisting political imperatives from unelected European Union bureaucrats in Brussels(without calling for the Eastern European nation to leave the EU), and opposition to attempts to promote a western-style cultural agenda in Poland. Duda has spoken against the promotion of homosexual ideology in the country, comparing the previous generation’s experiences living under communism to the liberal agenda. “They didn’t fight for this so that a new ideology would appear that is even more destructive,” said Duda in a campaign rally earlier this month.
Various other political parties competed in the first round elections, including other right-wing and conservative parties, who marshaled approximately 9% of the vote combined. If Duda can unite voters inclined to vote for parties to the right of Law and Justice, he stands a strong chance to cruise to an easy victory with more than 50% of the vote.
